"Vlisp was the precursor to Le_Lisp, one of the important Lisp dialects in France and Europe during the 1980's; though the dialects were different, they shared some important implementation techniques." [Steele and Gabriel 1993]

Source code

  • Paul Mennen, submitter. VLISP-11. DECUS PDP-11 Software Index number 110617, March 1984.
  • Abstract: VLISP-11 is a complete LISP programming environment which will run on any model PDP-11 or LSI-11. The VLISP interpreter is written in MACRO assembly language and implements 160 LISP functions including several I/O functions providing access to the RT-11 file structure. The rest of the package is written in VLISP and includes a pretty-printer (with parenthesis matching and commenting facilities), a save utility, a list oriented editor, a debugger, a file transfer utility, and an infinite precision floating point package. Additional versions are included which utilize the EIS or EIS/FIS instructions.

    Mennen obtained the source code from Patrick Greussay and made various bug fixes and improvements, marked in the source code with "[PM]".

  • Abstract: We describe in this paper a highly-optimized LISP compiler. The VLISP dialect is used as the source language and as the compiler language. This compiler can be used on any existing VLISP interpreters (from the PDP-10 to the Intel 8080). It generates instructions for the virtual machine VM#2 for portability and simplicity. Compiled functions are 6 times faster and memory usage is reduced (around 4 times).

  • Jérôme Chailloux. VLISP 8, the design of a LISP system on 8 bit micro-computers. 1979, 14 pages. Online at ArtInfo-MusInfo
  • Abstract: We describe in this paper, the design of a LISP system on 8 bit micro-computers and its incarnation: the VLISP 8 interpreter, implemented on INTEL 8080 based systems.

    According to the space and time limitations on such computers, several representations and manipulations of (atypical) LISP objects are discussed.

    VLISP 8, which is compatible with other VLISP systems, has a new style of function invocation (using F-TYP and F-VAL attributes), a management of small integers numbers which don't need any extra storage and an evaluator which does not create any ConsCells.
